Brendan Gleeson is a favorite actor, but you may have also heard of some of his sons, too. Brendan, who hosts “Saturday Night Live” Oct. 8 has four children — Domhnall, Brian, Rory and Fergus — all of whom work in the entertainment industry.

his elder Domhnallnow filming on “Patient”, playing alongside food-obsessed serial killer Sam Fortner Steve Carell a beleaguered therapist in a chilling crime drama. Domhnall, 39, has been making waves in Hollywood for a while playing Ron Weasley’s older brother Bill Weasley in Harry Potter in the movies alongside his father, who plays Mad Eye’s Alastor Moody. Domhnall went on to appear in About Time together Rachel McAdams, as well as the sci-fi drama Ex Machina. He also played Jim Farrell in Brooklyn and Captain Andrew Henry in The Saviors, and starred in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker and HBO’s Escape.

Meanwhile, Bryan, 34, is also an actor, having appeared in Snow White and the Huntsman and Assassin’s Creed and playing Jimmy McKevern in “Pican blinds”. Brian has worked with Domhnall on several projects over the years, starring in Darren Aronofsky’s Mother! in 2017 p Jennifer Lawrence. They also tried their hand at comedy in 2021’s Frank From Ireland, with Brian playing a failed musician and Domhnall his chaotic best friend Doofus.

Brian, Domhnall and dad Brendan, 67, have also previously worked together as a trio. In 2015, they starred in a play called The Walworth Farce, a comedy about a man and his two sons who find themselves in an apartment together and relive their past.

Brendan’s second eldest son, Fergus, 38, is also involved in art. A musician and songwriter, he sometimes performs with his father, and in 2020 they appeared on “The Late Show” with “Queen’s Hornpipe” duet. Meanwhile, Rory, 33, is a novelist, playwright and screenwriter, and his debut novel Rockadoon Shore was published in 2017. His debut short film, Psychic, premiered in 2018, starring Brendan, Donal and Brian, with Fergus composing the music. “I love working with them,” Brandon said of working with his kids in an October interview Irish sun. “[I]it keeps me in the mood a little bit.’

All of his sons’ creative successes mean that Brendan isn’t quite the big hero at home that he used to be. “There was a time when I could manage everything, knowing more than any of them, and now that’s not the case because they’ve moved into their own spaces…” he said in an interview. “It’s exciting. As long as you touch the wood, we’re still talking.” However, he credited his wife, Mary, with keeping their family on speaking terms, saying she often forbids the family from talking about work. “Psychic”, for example, was “banned for Christmas” for one year. “I was hoping she would get involved in short organizational things, but she said, ‘I’m getting out of here,'” Brendan said. Still, that didn’t stop him from yelling at her. “I did give her a title in the credits,” he added, according to The Irish Sun. “Arbiter” I called her, and I put in “Mary Weldon Absentee.”
